View Full Version : EP is the way I am going... but...
07-03-2006, 03:18 PM
I am planning on putting "The One" kit on my gun. But I have a dilema. The trigger frame I found for it has this weird design where there are two screws in the middle for the grips.
I want a frame that I can put Stickies on. Do they make a EP trigger frame like that? That will fit my T-Board?
07-03-2006, 03:48 PM
they probably have hybrid grips...
07-03-2006, 04:00 PM
you can get sticky grips for 2-hole mountings...just look at the pics carefully before hitting "shopping cart". I have them on my Ion...
07-03-2006, 04:08 PM
These are the parts I have found:
Doesnt this trigger frame look weird? The grip holes are in awkward spots.
I am going to need more parts. I already have the T-board though. I dont konw what else I am going to need besides the reg.
07-03-2006, 04:09 PM
those are dragun style grips, you won't find any grips unless you make them.
07-03-2006, 04:10 PM
That explains it... are there any other trigger frame options?
07-03-2006, 04:13 PM
making your own.... you can possibly modify a kingman frame, take a dremel and make the proper modifications so the hose can come out of the frame freely
07-03-2006, 04:14 PM
Dang - Opteron beat me to it. Actually, that frame doesn't look right for some reason. Make sure you can get the noid and stuff in it. It looks more like an older Dragun frame, and not the one from the One Kit. You might want to look into that.
Ace, if you do find some different grips, be sure to let the Dragun owners group know. They've been wanting new frames for YEARS! Otherwise, you can drill and tap the frame to POSSIBLY take a different set of grips. Honestly, I painted the plastic grips with some rubberized paint and they worked fine on my Dragun guns...

I am obsessed with my stickies though! Is the EP worth it? Or should I just go LP? I dont know what they really have to offer besides less air usage but... :confused:
07-03-2006, 04:19 PM
The noid that Damon sells is not the noid that works with the kit... It is a 12 volt noid... you need to buy one of these http://www.airsoldier.com:8080/cgi-bin/mivavm?Merchant2/merchant.mvc+Screen=PROD&Store_Code=AOS&Product_Code=HUM-HEB10F3-GL&Category_Code=SOLENOIDS ....
As for grips... i dont know if you can find any that will fit dragun frames....
Yea EP is alot better IMP then the LP spyder conversion... just becasue you never had recocking issues... It also makes you feel alittle cooler LOL...
07-03-2006, 04:23 PM
My god, what am I getting myself into... This project seems... difficult lol. Would the E-trigger frame work with the T-board? Or is that the same as all the rest of the stock trigger frames on spyders?
Honestly, I dont know what I need... thats why I made this post. So if everyone could post items I will need and wich ones are better, it would help me alot.
This thread probably should have been put in the "Custom" section huh? :oops:
07-03-2006, 04:34 PM
Personally, if you have no idea what you are doing... I would just do the LP setup and save money on getting a better gun. I might become a costly project if you mess up.
07-03-2006, 04:37 PM
Is it really possible to screw up that bad though? Also what would a LP kit cost me?
07-03-2006, 04:40 PM
What I'm saying is that there is a possibility that you can mess something up and have to replace it.
LP is not that expensive if you can do the home made mods from www.ottersccustoms.com or you can buy parts, but thats your choice
07-03-2006, 05:06 PM
Eh home made mods are too hard from what I have seen, and I dont have the skills to do them like that without messing up. My best bet would probably be the LP. What parts would I need for that and how much would they cost?
07-03-2006, 05:29 PM
Ok Chubbs convinced me once again to go for the EP. I will just drill some holes in my stickies and do some mods to them. Now I am trying to figure out how much this will cost me.

07-03-2006, 06:08 PM
that frame looks like it is from a 'Zip Kit' and it came with a funky noid too......
07-03-2006, 06:27 PM
Chubbs told me what noid I would have to buy. It looks like I will be investing around $115-180 on it. Then I will have to get an HPA tank. Hopefully off the forums... I also have to get an ASA(at least thats what I think its called).
07-03-2006, 06:27 PM
Drill and tap it to fit .45 style grips it looks like it would work.

Ok so I ordered the One Kit, got a J&J Ceramic 14" on the way, got a z-board on the way... now I have to find a good bolt for my Fenix that will work good with the EP kit. Any suggestions? I was thinking about the Shocktech Spyder Fenix - SupaFly Bolt.
Also, should I get a low pressure HPA tank? I have been looking at HPA/N2 tanks and I am trying to figure out what kind to get. I really dont need one bigger then 68ci. With a low pressure kit, it should use less right? So I dont need the huge tanks.
07-07-2006, 01:06 PM
Get a high pressure tank.
07-09-2006, 11:45 AM
Ok, but what about the bolt?
07-09-2006, 11:53 AM
the supa fly should be fine
07-09-2006, 04:50 PM
Jam bolt (http://www.apbbolts.com/Spyder.html)- one of the best I've ever used.
07-09-2006, 05:05 PM
Yeah but it doesnt list my gun on there. Wich one would work with the fenix? Also someone told me that ACS bolts wont be good for the EP kit I am putting on my gun. Is that true?
07-09-2006, 05:14 PM
I used a Jambolt on my T1 and it worked great. Don't know why it would be any different for the one kit, since it's basically the same thing.
As far as the Fenix bolt, I'd have to look at the bolt and compare them. Or you can contact the company about it.
07-11-2006, 08:00 AM
Do you have a primary reg? Because you'll need one.
Also, you COULD have used the 12v. noid damon sells, you just need to use 12 volt batteries instead of 9volts. The t-1 t-board will work with 12volt batteries, so you don't need to worry about frying it.
07-11-2006, 08:58 AM
The prob is finding a 12 volt battery. I am all set though, I bought a package from someone on here for $90 and it has the entire One Kit parts. Chubbs told me that the best bolt to get is an Orange. I found this one that looks really cool. I might pick it up if that Jambolt doesnt work in my Fenix.
